Good question! The BE99 Captain flight min for ME is 50 hours. However, we are able to hire under that - especially if you have higher times in other place like Turbine, Night, or Instrument. You'll get a bit in training, as well.

Highly encourage you to apply, especially if the location you prefer is open. Let me know when you do and I'll ping a recruiter for you!

You are correct. It's not actually possible to have 500 TT and 500 PIC at the same time. The 500 TT is a hard min. The 500 PIC is just a preferred min. So definitely need the 500 TT and as close as possible to the 500 PIC is preferred. Hope that makes sense!

Here are the bases that have EMB120 routes atm: BFI, ONT, PDX, PHX, BQN, and SLC

We see openings every two or so months. In fact, three of the pilots in our December training class are going to be EMB120 FOs.

Hope that helps!
Yes thank you! I will be getting the 500TT mins within the next month along with the ME time. I'll keep a lookout for the EMB 120 FO position on the website.

Currently looking to switch careers from a Delta mechanic to full time flying.

I applied with just barely more multi time than you, and 90 percent of my flight time was in helicopters (VFR). Ameriflight's training program is tough if you don't study. I got a hold of training materials early and studied my butt off before indoc. I'd hop in a sim and turn the GPS off too just to prepare if you're worried about the IFR stuff.



Your chances of becoming PIC at Ameriflight are what you put into it. Study and be IFR proficient, and you'll do alright.

I have 34 hours and recruiting told me I needed 50 before they would start the interview process.

Default Home Based BE99 Pilot Requirements

Curious what the real/practical requirements are to be home based in the BE99? Seemed like several months ago, there were a number of home based positions posted, but have not seen them for a while. At the time, the listed requirements were the same as the other BE99 CA positions, but I think I saw a comment somewhere that Ameriflight is actually looking for higher experience for home basing due to the variety of locales/conditions that might be encountered.

So are they still hiring home based folks at all? If so, what are you looking for? I surpass the normal BE99 CA listed requirements, but have to stay in the Austin area for another year for family reasons. SAT would be a 2 hr one-way drive for me, not really commutable for the Ameriflight schedule.

You must live in north Austin. I lived in south Austin when I started with AMF and could make it to SAT in 45 minutes at 5AM. But that was also 18 years ago.

How long is the training contract for the ACP program? Also, how many hours do you get on average as an BE-99 pilot? I am assuming around 70-80 a month?

Cedar Park, actually. It's a solid 1:30 with zero traffic. But how often is that the case on IH-35?

$15,000 was the last one I've seen.

every 400h it'll get reduced by $5,000. So once you fly 1,200h with AMF the contract is "paid off"

I'd say average flight time for BE99 is about 50 to 60h a month.
